I installed Libre Office and it has been working fine for me until I just today started attempting to access files via WebDAV and now it asks for the Master Password. Up until today I didn't even know that Libre Office had it's own credential management tool (which i probably would have turned off anyway). But anyway, I read up and found where to find the settings in options and found that it seems to have been set somehow because instead of asking me to set it, it asks for the password. I installed LibreOffice a very short time ago so I'm fairly certain I never set a password in it. I check all my standard passwords just to be sure and nothing gets me in.

I have not used the credential vault at all so I'm fine knocking it out or resetting it but I haven't found a way to do that. Do I need to completely uninstall and reinstall?

Please advise.

I'm running LibreOffice on Fedora 17 and Gnome 3, if any of that matters.

This is odd, as by default, passwords shouldn't be stored. Anyhow, if you have not made any other important configurations to LibreOffice, the simplest thing is to delete the directory ~/.config/libreoffice (Use Ctrl-H in Nautilus to reveal the hidden .config folder).
